Bradford Cox (Deerhunter, Atlas Sound) is one of five songwriter-composers chosen to participate in the world premiere of “Exposed: Songs for Unseen Warhol Films” at the Carnegie Music Hall in Pittsburgh.

The performance on Friday, Oct. 17th will feature Cox, Tom Verlaine (of the seminal New York band Television), Martin Rev (New York-based electronic duo Suicide), Dean Wareham (Galaxie 500, Luna) and Eleanor Friedberger (The Fiery Furnaces) composing and performing music live on stage as 15 digitally restored and previously unscreened short films by Andy Warhol are shown.

The event is part of the 20th anniversary activities for Pittsburgh’s Andy Warhol Museum, the largest museum in the US dedicated to a single artist. The pop art icon was born in Pittsburgh in 1928.
